The twitter storm created by Kayne West regarding Wiz Kalifa's comments about Waves, the recently changed album title Kayne is about to release, has overshadowed any of the music these two rap giants have created recently. The friction became my muse. I dropped in and mixed this track "Swish to Waves (Kayne vs. Wiz Kalifa Mix feat. Forensic and Cube3)" for those of us who would rather dance than get caught up in the noise of tweets and gossip.
The mix features ccMixter artists Forensic, Cube3 and StellarArtWars, all amazing in their own right and freely uploading source materials to remix. As with any mix, the muse dictates the flow, and the journey to a final track was filled with hours of inspiration. Along the way I got a healthy dose of both Kayne's and Kalifa's work. I hope they use the storm to create their own waves like I did.

You'd truly have to be floating in a tin can far away from the world to not be inspired by the life and the work of David Bowie. As an artist and as a human, he opened up doors to new worlds for us to explore. Throughout the course of my life as an artist, David was a icon of reinvention, creativity and mystery. His music stands the test of time. So will Bowie's legacy.
I recorded this song "The Stars Look Different" because I wanted to say thank you through music. Mixed with samples released under Creative Commons, by ccMixter artists stefsax and Dimitri Artimenko, the track is a reminder to me of the creative process, of what inspires us, and of how we communicate. We are all connected. Thanks David, you really took the world for a beautifully creative ride.
